• Total agreement with this. Being interrupted, switching contexts… That’s working in a team. Yes, it has effects, but that’s part of the job. Don’t be precious about it. twitter.com/janeruffi…

  • Pool empty and lessons cancelled after someone… polluted the environment.

  • I have yet to accidentally set anything on fire today. That’s an improvement on other days this week. 🔥

  • Slightly tempted to shift my blog from Jekyll to Hugo just so that I don’t have to fiddle with dependencies on my CI service when I publish a post every 6-12 months.

  • We could count the ways this is funny.


  • 📚 This evening I read Tade Thompson’s The Murders of Molly Southbourne. Wow. That really was something. If you like short, sweet and creepy, give it a look.

  • Jeremy’s been watching Logan’s Run again.


  • Well, hello there, new Divine Comedy album. I didn’t know about you.

  • I read this going, “Yup… Yup… Yup…”

    When programmers’ string opinions meet the Real World™.


  • All the websites that republish StackOverflow content surrounded by their own ads and clog up the search engine listings. They are a pox on the internet.

  • Sits in a little metal tube for an hour, sharing the air with 80 other people. Gets sick. ✅

  • Contemplating those going for the Tory leadership. Rory Stewart seems to have a history of being Actually Useful and Not An Arsehole.

    He hasn’t a hope of getting the job 😞

  • Leaving the house before 6 is much less painful when it’s daylight.

  • “Of course I’m going to go for it” are clearly the words of someone who grasps the gravity of the proposition 😕


  • 🎙️ I’m a bit late to the party, but I really enjoyed Tim Ferriss interviewing Neil Gaiman. It’s a delight, but also leaves the sense of much still to be discussed.


  • This looks like a great lineup. Sad I won’t be able to make it.


  • Older child turns 10 today. Is this what getting old feels like?

  • 🎵 I wanted to listen to something different today to what I’ve had lately. I’ve ended up with Meat Loaf 🤘

    I don’t know what to say. I only met Lyra in person once or twice in passing, but knew her a little in the Twitters. She was one of the good ones, and there’s no sense at all in this. NI is diminished without her voice.

  • I don’t know what the birds round here are eating this year, but getting the car clean nearly took a chisel 😶

  • 🎬 It’s a shame The Silence is such a dull film. I quite enjoyed the novel it’s based on.

  • I successfully spent a Scottish banknote in an English shop. I am invincible! I can do anything!

  • Words to live by. twitter.com/tdierks/s…
